"AI and Telecom"

While artificial intelligence has gradually become a mainstream topic in the Telecom industry over the last few years, large language models (LLMs) and generative AI have catapulted AI into the consciousness of everyone around the globe in just a few months due to the astounding public reception to ChatGPT. This jolt by LLMs for the entire field of artificial intelligence is being felt by seemingly all industries with Telecom being no exception. This presentation will describe the areas where Telecom can benefit from AI/ML - including generative AI and LLMs - as well as address Responsible AI and impending government regulations in the context of Telecom.

Bio: Anne Y. Lee is a Bell Labs Fellow currently working as a Senior Technology Advisor in the Technology Leadership Office on Technology Strategy and Architecture supporting the CSTO and CEO by analyzing the evolution of key technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence) and the overall network architecture to identify new directions for the industry and the impact and requirements on the company's portfolio.

Anne has over 30 years of experience at Nokia (AT&T, Lucent Technologies, Alcatel-Lucent, and Nokia).

She is the original IMS technical team leader for Lucent Technologies working closely with the standards team from the beginning — circa 1999 — to pioneer the multi-access, globally interoperable IP communications system being deployed worldwide today. 2019 was the 20th anniversary of IMS and today there are roughly three to four billion devices deployed utilizing VoLTE, VoWiFi, fixed voip, and RCS services. IMS has just gone cloud native and adoption continues around the globe into 5G and beyond evolving to features beyond voice with the integration of WebRTC.

Anne is a technologist at heart and an electrical engineer and computer scientist by training. She became a Bell Labs Fellow in 2005.
